What will I do?

As an Engineering Manager at TrainingPeaks, you are responsible for leading and growing one or more software engineering team to develop our SaaS platform by crafting new software systems from the ground up and supporting our existing products and services.

We believe that functional managers’ primary focus lies on people, functional development, and process improvement.

  • Being a strong collaborator with your fellow engineering managers and leaders, shepherding our engineering organization, coaching and championing lean engineering principles and practices to build our tribal-level engineering culture
  • Managing & leading Tech Leads and providing air cover for more complex problems our Tech Leads have not faced yet. Coaching them on project management, process management, and team leadership concepts as they take on more responsibility in partnership with their POs/PMs

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Working in CA with a team in CO, one would think our distance puts a strain on accessibility, but with the amount of communication channels we have, being available to the team is second nature. Peaksware is centered on trust and accountability. Through this model, accessibility and collaboration is seamless regardless of the distance.
